Barry M 158 Coral Blush Lipstick

158 Coral Blush is my first (and only) Barry M lipstick. I got it from my swap with Sandra. It's a fun, bright colored lipstick. The purple packaging is adorable as well. I can't wait to try more Barry M lip products in the future. 

Color
When I first removed the cap and saw the lipstick I thought it looked like MAC's Impassioned which is why I swatched them side by side. 158 is a vibrant pink. I wouldn't call it a fuchsia because it's not blue toned. The color is more like a flamingo pink.

Pigmentation
It's very bright but still sheer. Your natural lip texture shows through. This means it doesn't hide uneven lip pigmentation. It's much more wearable than Impassioned.

Longevity
As expected with such a bright color, it lasts really long. It actually leaves a very stubborn stain just like Impassioned. I swatched these on my arm in the morning, washed them off with soap twice, and they were still visible at night.

Dupes
I initially thought Barry M 158 was a dupe for MAC Impassioned but after comparing them I don't think they are. 158 is like Impassioned's wearable sister (because it's sheerer and doesn't look so bold.) Impassioned has a deeper watermelon color, 158 is lighter. Their differences are more apparent on the lips:
Bottom line: Barry M's 158 is a gorgeous pink. I love bright colors like this and I recommend it if you don't have anything like it already. It lasts a long time and leaves a stain afterwards so you don't have to worry about touch ups.

  1. Gorgeous colour and it really does brighten your skin tone :) I have a barryM lipstick but i find that it is too drying on my lips. This however, looks quite moisturising and nice on the lips so they may have changed their formulation :) Thank you for the swatches~ They both look lovely on your lips xxxx

    1. Thank you! :) It seems like their formulation is quite inconsistent because I have read a few negative reviews on Barry M lipsticks before xx

  2. Very pretty color. I have heard a lot of great things about Barry M to bad they don't sell it in Canada. Looks really pretty on you. Thanks for sharing.

  16. Isn't it wonderful to finally find a long lasting lipstick? Color is bright and pretty. I like this.

  17. Oo that's pretty! I love bright pinks on lips. Impassioned seem to have a better formulation. It looks smoother on your lips. I don't mind a bit of staining but if the staining is potent and doesn't want to go away when I want it to then that would annoy me.

    1. Yes, the formula for Impassioned is a little better because it's creamier. And sadly Impassioned is very much like that, lol. Whenever I wear it I have to use makeup remover to take the stain away because I don't want bright watermelon pink on my lips for 2 days xx

  18. Ooh I love Impassioned so I am sure I would love this too :) I usually wear sheerer lipsticks to work!

I've never really considered Barry m lipsticks before but this has made me want too go and check some of them out after reading this :) another lovely post xxxx

  20. So pretty! I love my MAC Impassioned, but the Barry M looks like a great alternative! I wish we could buy those products over here. I'm currently working on a makeup swap with a girl in the UK and I am SO excited about it!

  21. What a pretty color, I've heard many negative reviews about Barry M lipsticks and how the formula gets worse every day but I cannot say that about your lipstick, looks moisturizing! x

    1. I've heard many bad things too. It seems like it's a brand with poor consistency: some good, average, and a lot of bad. xx

  22. This seems like my kind of color! I love Impassioned and this looks like a great alternative! Nice post!

  23. Gosh, this is absolutely gorgeous. I am such a sucker for bright pinks! I have Impassioned as well, but this is definitely different enough to have both :)

  24. Hi Coco,
    I have not tried any Barry M lipstick before. It's good to hear that the pigmentation is satisfying and it lasts for long hours.

  25. Heard so many great things about Barry M, wish it was available worldwide ^^ This colour is a bit bright for me but it looks great on you : ) xx

  26. I love lipstick, especially in red and dark maroon or is it called oxblood? Lovely color there.
